Despicable Me Trailer #2: Supervillains Are Funny


Ever since Universal Pictures released the first teaser trailer for their upcoming animated comedy Despicable Me back in July, I’ve been curious about it. The animation looks great, the voice cast is solid, it comes from Christopher Meledandri, the producer of such underrated animated flicks as Robots and Horton Hears a Who! This might actually be something worth watching out for.

And here, just days after Dreamworks released the abysmal trailer for How to Train Your Dragon, Universal and Illumination Entertainment have dropped a new, longer trailer via Apple. This time we finally meet Gru (voiced by Steve Carrell), the world’s #2 supervillain. He’s engaged in a war of wits with Vector (voiced by Jason Segel), the world’s #1 supervillain. That’s all we know for now — but the film follows Gru’s fight to become number one, and to steal the moon.

That sounds fun. The Pierre Coffin, Chris Renaud and Sergio Pablos directed film will also feature the voices of Will Arnett, Mindy Kaling, Kristen Wiig, Russell Brand, Danny McBride and Julie Andrews. It hits theaters on July 9, 2010.
